About the Annex

The Main Library Annex is where the behind-the-scenes magic happens!

The north end (or Fifth Street) entrance to the Annex houses our administrative offices, the Outreach Department, and the First Presbyterian Church of Chillicothe's Children's Clothing Bank.

The Fifth Street entrance also provides easy access to our meeting rooms for community non-profit use. Larger Main Library programs, like our Annual Book Sale, are often held in the Annex.

Deliveries are accepted at the Paint Street side of the Annex. Our Marketing, Technical Processing, Information Technology, and Human Resources offices are located in this wing of the building.

There are no library collections or material for checkout in the Annex. Please visit the Main Library, located right in front of the Annex building, to browse materials.
